I'd prefer devs working on the next games than spend time on something that can be hacked anyway. It's not a banking system, spending a lot of effort on forum voting is just not worth it.

The only reason I brought this up was because I didn't like the thought of game decisions being made based on misinformation, and as CDPR is the kind of dev team that actually pays attention to player feedback the integrity and reliability of the feedback matters.
But at the end of the day, it's just a forum and just a game *shrug*

People are expressing their opinions, or things they'd like to see in the game. Not sure how "false information" comes into the picture. Unless you mean that people are creating several accounts so that they'll dominate in a selected poll, while yes that could be viewed as "false information", I'd hardly think people are doing it here, and I'm certain CDPR are looking more deeply into what we post than what a poll shows with a handful of votes.
They are meaningful for the community, but meaningless in general yes. Frankly, judging by the in-thread comments and quarrels, I doubt people even pay attention to the poll.cmdrflashheart said:So polls are basically useless and meaningless, then.
Can't deny that it might happen, but creating multiple accounts, with multiple email addresses (and verification system is pretty messy in this forum - don't know if they've fixed it finally) is devilish. Polls have multivote option. If the OP tick the box for multivote, one can vote more than once. But not for the same entry.I don't think re-voting happens all the time, but I am certain that it does sometimes. And the incidence of re-voting is likely to increase on a popular issue.
